The 10 things you simply must see in Paris
Everyone falls in love with a different part of Paris. Whether you visit for the romantic gardens, the bohemian streets of Montmartre, the couture fashion, or the art history: there is always another gem waiting for you around the corner.
Planning Your Visit
What should you know before you arrive in Paris?
In a city this crowded with people and this steeped in tradition, you should decide which attractions you want to see in advance. Know which museums are a must-visit for your group. Make dinner reservations. Decide which neighborhoods you want to explore. Figure out how to beat the crowds at the Musee d'Orsay.
How big is Paris?
If you haven't been to Paris before, you may be surprised by how sprawling the city is compared to other, more walkable tourist destinations like Rome or Barcelona. (You can certainly walk -- but the Métro will help you zip around quicker!) Try to organize your sightseeing by neighborhood, so that you're not racing across the city several times a day.
How many days should you spend in Paris?
It depends! It really will help to prioritize what you want to see before you go, and map out how long it will take you to see everything on your list. You could easily fill five days with tours and major attractions -- but remember to dedicate time to strolling down the Seine, shopping your way through the Marais, and drinking a Kir Royal at a sidewalk cafe.

What people are saying about Paris
Visite passionnante avec un guide cultivé qui connaît très bien les lieux. On aurait jamais vu autant de choses intéressantes seuls ! Il y a de quoi se perdre au Père Lachaise. Je recommande vivement cette visite guidée.
Overall perfect experience. The guide was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. She took great care to make sure we had the best possible experience. Even showing us a few extra pieces after the tour had finished.
Amazing experience, Versailles is a magical place, with a lot of history and outstanding architecture. The audio guide is a very nice thing to help you out if you don't speak Franch For sure worth visiting.
What a great way to spend a day exploring Paris. Using Questo you get to discover places you may not know about and you get to learn some history too. Highly recommended
Best Guide EVER! So much enthusiasm and passion for Parisian history. Cycling was fun too
